Confirmed: Callum Robinson seals move to Premier League

Republic of Ireland winger Callum Robinson is officially on his way to the Premier League after securing a move to Sheffield United.

Robinson will join Enda Stevens, David McGoldrick and John Egan at the newly promoted club with the 24-year-old signing a four-year deal at Bramall Lane.

Robinson is Chris Wilder's third signing of the summer following the acquisitions of Luke Freeman and Phil Jagielka with the former Preston wide man smashing the Blades transfer record according to the club's website.

Sheffield saw off competition from fellow Premier League newcomers Norwich City for the winger and Wilder confirmed that he has been on the club's radar for the last few seasons.

"Callum fits into our structure perfectly as we look to Championship players who we feel can be successful at Premier League level.

"Callum is someone who was on our radar a number of years ago and he has progressed how we thought he would and hopefully there is plenty more to come.

"I feel Callum is a great age and what we have paid represents great value in the current market."

Sheffield have not disclosed the fee paid but have confirmed that it surpasses the sum paid for Freeman earlier this summer.

Robinson will now join Sheffield on their pre-season training camp to Portugal but he will not play in Friday night's friendly with Real Betis.
